We loved this lounge and outdoor deck! There was nothing better than sitting in the sunshine sipping a cocktail overlooking the stunning surroundings. We did have a few snacks from the menu which were great and the choice of teas is exceptional! Service is like everywhere at The Palace excellent! Definitely worth a visit.

Good view overlooking the pools and bird walk. Friendly service although it's a trainnee who served us. He tried his best to introduce our inquiries. Brilliant cocktails by the way, must try!

My husband and I enjoyed a late night drink - we do wish they had a menu available but unfortunately we were forced to eat room service only

My husband and I had a nightcap here on the outdoor terrace after sending the kids to bed. We had a pleasant time but were slightly miffed to see a charge for the nuts on the bill at check out as we handed requested them and the server just brought them out to us unbidden.

After reading previous reviews we decided to catch the typical sunset on the deck, and enjoy cocktails.Bit difficult to see a sunset when the gardens are so lush, but we still enjoyed the experiance. Cocktails were a touch too sweet, Mojito and Margeritas and not quite as was advertised, service excellent and the sticky pork riblets tasted pre cooked.

Located in the palace with seating inside or outside. The food was very good. We had Caesar salads and club sandwiches between us. The service was very good and the setting lovely. Perfect if you want a quick bite to eat in casual surroundings ;-)

A tranquil setting and good place to unwind & relax with kids. Food is good. Limited seating and slow service if you are in a hurry. You can catch up on some reading, newspaper or just relax & enjoy the music. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

We were not guests at the Palace of the Lost City but we decided to go to the Tusk Bar based on the other reviews. We were not disappointed. To get to the Tusk Bar we walked through the most amazing settings, stopped to stare at the Crystal Court and then settled into our chairs in the Tusk Bar and... More
